The trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s next film THE GREAT GATSBY has just hit the internet worldwide. Luhrmann’s stylised adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name looks and feels the way a Luhrmann movie always does, full of huge set peices and an incredible looking movie.
Don’t get me wrong I’m a massive fan of Baz’s films well except for AUSTRALIA that film was an abominaton but he definitely knows what he wants and the look he wants with any film that he makes and to think he hasn’t done a movie since AUSTRALIA in 2008 well except for a bunch of short films.
From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby. The filmmaker will create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before, in a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. “The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
THE GREAT GATSBY hits Australian screens on the 10th of January 2013, our american friends get to see it on Christmas day this year.
